Legacy Endowment Fund
Most of us make regular donations to the life and work of First UMC. We also may make special gifts dedicated to a loved one or meeting a specific need, but we may not have thought about supporting our church and being a part of the ministries to the generations that follow us. The Legacy Endowment Fund provides an opportunity to support the church’s mission and ministries in the future with a current gift or by remembering the Fund in your will or trust, or as a designated beneficiary of another asset.
All donations to the Legacy Endowment Fund are invested with the Florida United Methodist Foundation, Inc. which ensures that gifts are invested according to the social principles of the United Methodist Church. Oversight of the Legacy Endowment Fund is handled by the Finance Committee and works with the church leadership to utilize, as needed, the interest from the investments of the Fund in support the missions and ministries of First UMC.
Everyone who includes a bequest to the Legacy Endowment Fund becomes a member of the First UMC Legacy Society and their name will be inscribed on the Roll of Honor plaque. Membership begins with the reception of the Letter of Intent for the bequest and not when the bequest is actually received.
